Cambridge Gothic2 books in series
College of Shadows Publisher's Summary
Cambridge attracts the brightest minds, the darkest forces, and the deadliest monsters.
The latest freshers have more than fitting in to fear when a forbidden entity is unleashed in an ancient seat of learning. New arrivals Nick and Annabel feel out of place at university, but when they are attacked by a creature straight out of their worst nightmares, their first term becomes less pass-fail than do-or-die.
As the bodies pile up, their college’s dark secret cannot stay hidden for long. And when their tutors fall prey to mysterious forces, can Nick and Annabel enroll the night climber Giles to help banish the beast before freshers’ year becomes their last?
College of Shadows is the pause-resisting first novel in the Cambridge Gothic series. If you like Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, with haunted heroes, unspeakable horrors, and parallel worlds, then you’ll love Mark Wells’ urban fantasy tale.
